CT MAGNOSTAR Coiled Tubing Magnet

Overview Library

Exceptional debris removal for coiled tubing operations.

The CT MAGNOSTAR coiled tubing magnet from M-I SWACO is the industry’s only magnet designed to extract the large amount of ferrous debris that is generated in coiled tubing cleanout operations. During demanding coiled tubing milling operations, the CT MAGNOSTAR magnet removes heavy metallic debris that cannot be circulated out of the wellbore.

Powerful strength for a variety of CT challenges

This high-strength, rare-earth magnet is typically fitted atop the coiled tubing motor, where it attracts plug slips, metal swarf, and other ferrous material. Available in 2 7/8-in and 2 3/8-in sizes, the CT MAGNOSTAR magnet can be used with coiled tubing while cutting windows, drilling out plugs, milling stuck isolation valves, or performing a routine cleanup run. Featuring a one-piece full-strength mandrel, CT MAGNOSTAR magnet can also be used in fishing operations to collect ferrous debris outside of the standard annular gap via specially designed valleys in the tool.

Flexibility to meet high-flow and ball-drop requirements

The CT MAGNOSTAR magnet is engineered to meet the demands of operations requiring high flow rates and ball drops. It’s through-bore design with a large ID allows balls to be dropped to disconnect a sub below and enables circulating at a high rate whenever necessary.
